A new investigation by CNN has revealed a new shocking trend that sees Nigerian women being shipped to France for prostitution.
The Nigerian women
The shocking video of a park in Paris where Nigerian women are forced by human traffickers into prostitution has emerged.
The Bois de Vincennes, a sprawling park on the outskirts of eastern Paris, is home to horse riding schools and a zoo. It has also been part-commandeered by human traffickers and s_x slaves, 80 percent of whom are Nigerian women.
The sex slaves are brought from various African countries, but the majority of them are Nigerians, and made to stand by the park, waiting for customers. At the end of the day, they return the money they made to their traffickers.
9 out of 10 women in the park are not free women. They belong to a network of human traffickers. The women have no identity and no means of escaping their predicament for several reasons.
Most of them are made to take an oath before leaving Nigeria. They are also branded on their skin by their traffickers, then transported to Europe like a “bag of fruits.” Most have no means of starting a new life because their ID’s have been seized by their traffickers.
When prison police were asked how this could be allowed to continue, they told CNN there simply isn’t very much they can do.
